    • Abstract: Wastie, Ali
      A strong culture of shared leadership and a commitment to delighting the customer leads to major milestones and a Victorian First for Yarra Ranges Council. At 9.30am on March 5 2018, Yarra Ranges Council became the first Council in Victoria to provide a complete digital planning application experience. Yarra Ranges is the only Victorian Council and one of five across Australia, where an applicant can enquire, lodge, track and pay for their planning application online. While a handful of Councils have managed to build systems where applicants and residents can track planning applications, no other Victorian Council is providing a fully digital planning experience.

    • Abstract: Low, Nicholas
      Nick Low's recent letter to The Age about politics and planning was scathing. He wrote: "The leaderships of both main political parties have failed to provide metropolitan Melbourne with a transport system that serves the mobility needs of today's Melburnians, let alone those of the future". Many other needs for housing, education and open space are also going unmet.

  • Volume 44 Issue 3 - Urban choreography: Central Melbourne 1985
    • Abstract: Dovey, Kim; Jones, Ronald; Adams, Rob
      This book is an account of urban design transformations in central Melbourne since about 1985, a time when, despite a history as Marvellous Melbourne, the city had a reputation for conformity and staidness. The central city residential population was negligible. Central city retail activity was in decline as suburban shopping malls burgeoned. The city was saturated with cars and parking. A substantial architectural heritage was threatened with demolition for high-rise modernist projects - and indeed much was lost. Melbourne had become a rather dull place that closed on evenings and weekends.

  • Volume 44 Issue 3 - Displacement refugee camps
    • Abstract: Golby, Julian
      Refugee camps are the cities of tomorrow. The average stay for refugees in camps run by the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) is 17 years. Palestinian refugees have been living in camps since 1948. According to architecture undergraduate Sophie Flinder, architects and planners should study camps like The Jungle' in Calais, France in order to assist refugee agencies to build better camps in the future. Flinder spent six months studying the history of the camp and charting its transformation from "a non-place to a place".

    • Abstract: Lawson, Julie
      It is not often that research influences policy directly. Much to the frustration of academics, evidence-based proposals can remain on the policy shelf. Yet, in the case of affordable housing, RMIT's research has recently made a direct hit in the soon to be legislated National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation.

  • Volume 44 Issue 2 - "What Matthew Guy did at Fishermans Bend stinks"
    • Abstract:
      The headline in The Age by Planning Minister Richard Wynne accompanies the Government announcement of a Fishermans Bend planning freeze which casts doubts on more than $4.5 billion worth of high-rise apartment projects at the controversial precinct. The Minister is notifying the developers of 26 major projects that their permit applications are being "called in" and put on hold until new planning controls are established later this year. The Age understands that the government is facing a potential legal backlash from the developers, who are taking advice on mounting a collective court challenge to the multibillion-dollar decision.

    • Abstract:
      "Why are there so few female chief executives' Why are so many CEOs named Peter' Not only are women rare at the top of big Australian companies, but men named Peter run more such companies than do women. The shocking finding after decades of talk about breaking the glass ceiling comes from a count of the 200 biggest public companies that constitute the ASX200 index. The idea for the survey isn't original. It comes from the US economist Justin Wolfers who wrote in the New York Times that fewer large American companies were run by women than by men named John

  • Volume 44 Issue 2 - National freight and supply chain priorities
    • Abstract:
      PIA has contributed to the National Freight and Supply Chain Priorities Inquiry Report. Freight tonnages within capital cities are forecast to double in 20 years, with lesser growth between the cities. The freight industry is potentially a powerful instrument of decentralisation of jobs, and can ease the growth pains facing Australia's capital cities. Given appropriate incentives, freight hubs encourage people to live and work in areas with good housing and lifestyle opportunities.

The Centre aims to create a better understanding of the problems and challenges facing the Danish housing economy. The Danes were keen to gain perspective on the economic and financial drivers impacting housing in Australia, as well as policies to address social and affordable housing delivery.

  • Volume 44 Issue 2 - What future do we want'
    • Abstract: Cooke, Ben
      In November, an array of planners, urban designers and other interested professionals came together to discuss and debate 'what future do we want'' and 'how do we get there''. The workshop encouraged participants to 'backcast' to the present to seek to understand what we need to do to achieve our desired future. Backcasting forces us to let go of current planning complexities, and instead focus on the broader direction and outcomes of our discipline. Needless to say, this was an ambitious undertaking.

  • Volume 44 Issue 2 - Climate change, sea level rise, and the built form of
           cities
    • Abstract: Parsons, Jaime
      I must confess that I have a morbid fascination for dystopian urban environments and fantasy architecture, even when I would rather not have to live in these imagined spaces. But there is a strong possibility that many of us will actually experience a 'seismic shift' in the built form of our towns and cities as result of climate change and its scion, sea level rise.

  • Volume 44 Issue 2 - Transport Integration Act 2010: Good statute neutered
    • Abstract: Unkles, Bill
      The current debate over the merits of the Westgate Tunnel Project raises some real concerns about transport planning in Victoria. The Brumby government had the Transport Integration Act 2010 (TIA) enacted, finally providing a cohesive legislative framework for planning of transport projects across Victoria. This legislation recognised the need for a comprehensive and integrated approach to transport planning, emphasising the interrelationships between public and private transport systems for moving both people and goods. When enacted, it appeared that the role of public transport in servicing the needs of a complex, large post-industrial city was to be given due recognition. There was hope that we had put the days of ad-hoc development of large transport projects behind us.

    • Abstract: Nelson, Anitra
      Small is Necessary: Shared Living on a Shared Planet (Pluto Press, London) is a new book exploring recent international developments in 'eco-collaborative housing'. The book intervenes in urban, housing and planning policy and debates in several significant ways, not only advocating for smaller dwellings but also offering sustainability, affordability and sociality arguments within which eco-collaborative housing becomes a left-field solution.

      The Age reports that an attempt to block the Andrews government's deal with Apple to build a store in Federation Square has failed in parliament, clearing the way for the contentious retail development. The Greens sought to disallow planning approval for the new Apple shop. But the party was friendless in the Upper House, its disallowance motion defeated by 34 votes to four, as Labor, the Coalition and the cross-bench combined to vote it down.

    • Abstract: Breen, Kate
      Twelve months ago, the Victorian Government released two important policy documents: Homes for Victorians, and the 'refreshed' Plan Melbourne 2017 - 2050. While there is always room for improvement, these two documents are a significant and long-overdue step towards a whole-of-government strategy to increase social and affordable housing for lower income Victorians.

      It may be recalled that in The Secretary to the Department of Health and Human Services and Melbourne Health v Melbourne CC (Red Dot) [2016] VCAT 2051 (editorial comment VCAT Volume 4 No 7) the Tribunal held there was a material mistake in relation to the grant of the permit and a failure to give notice in accordance with the P&E Act to the Royal Melbourne Hospital operators Melbourne Health but not to the Department. In all the circumstances, the Tribunal concluded it would be just and fair to amend the permit to reduce the permitted height of the building to the same height as the height of the Royal Melbourne Hospital helipad.

  • Volume 44 Issue 2 - Planning properly for our Federation Square
    • Abstract: Henshall, John
      When I first arrived in Melbourne from provincial Victoria in the mid-1960s as a young student and lived in Carlton, an initial impression was the grid-pattern of the CBD streets (obviously, I didn't venture too far from my new 'home' at that time). I was overcome by the length of the streets, like Swanston Street (north-south) and Bourke Street (east-west). It could take days for me, a county-born lad, to actually traverse this city centre! And no wonder Melbourne's celebration of festivals and events were held in long 'trains' of floats and open-topped sports cars as everyone, from football heroes to Moomba Queens and pop stars, travelled these long central-city streets, with the Myer Department Store, Flinders Street Station and the Gas and Fuel Buildings standing proud in the background of all of the newspapers' photo opportunities.

My awakening to the climate crisis led me to take the most radical step of my life: stand by while my family's home was bulldozed, with the promise that a utopian new village community could be born from the rubble. My name is Giselle and I am a creator and founding member of Murundaka Cohousing Community.

      On Wednesday 7 February, every member of the Legislative Council, except the ALP members, voted to pass a motion tabling the planning scheme amendment that facilitates the delivery of the West Gate tunnel project, GC65. GC65 had been gazetted on 7 December and, unlike the usual practice of tabling it in both houses of the Victorian Parliament as soon as it was gazetted, Planning Minister Richard Wynne sought to dither, delay, obfuscate and hold up the process to create an apparent head of steam for a project that the community does not support.

    • Abstract: Crommelin, Laura
      With housing affordability, a topic of constant public debate Australia's major cities, and our urban populations continuing to grow, governments are under immense pressure to meet current and projected housing needs. In recent decades, 'compact city' policies promoting higher density renewal within the urban boundary, largely delivered through the private market, have been adopted as the solution. However, as these policies have been implemented, concerns have emerged that market-driven urban renewal does not always occur in designated higher density areas, and that these renewal projects do not offer quality outcomes for new residents.

They were then adopted by the General Assembly in 2014 for implementation from 2015. These goals were developed to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDG's) that were due to lapse. Whereas the MDG's focused on social and economic issues particularly as they applied to the poorer nations of the world, the new SDG's are more far reaching and now stand as a global challenge confronting all nations, and indeed all individuals.

But how, exactly' What kind of regulatory, policy and infrastructure investment framework is needed to realise the full benefits of the AV revolution' These are vital questions for town planners, and we need to start answering them now. The planning profession needs to elbow its way into this policymaking arena, both at state and national level.

      Covenants accidentally rule the Victorian planning system. As most practitioners will be aware, a planning permit cannot be granted under the Victorian system if it breaches a restrictive covenant on the land. This means that, regardless of merit, these legal restrictions bind decision-makers and override planning considerations during a planning process.
